Review There's a major star in Full Metal Jacket: Stanley Kubrick's direction. Resurfacing like a cinematic cicada after a seven-year absence, the American expatriate has overtaken the homegrown Viet Pack of Coppolas, Ciminos and Stones to make the most eloquent and exacting vision of the war to date...Although the elements of the story are simple and precise, Kubrick infuses a dreamlike, fatalistic quality. Sometimes the characters come alive, other times they seem like so many props for Kubrick's smoldering landscapes and tracking camera movements. The finale, a harrowing cat-and-mouse game with a sniper, ends in a building that -- with its forever-burning (and strategically placed) fires -- looks like a satanic temple. Kubrick's soundtrack is characteristically dynamic and explosive...Inspired with technique rather than overblown with it, Kubrick, the filmmaker's filmmaker, lays one on you.

Review Stanley Kubrick's war drama Full Metal Jacket is really two films: the first is a blistering indictment of the military's soul-crushing indoctrination techniques; the second, a coolly cynical look at the plight of the G.I. in the killing fields of Vietnam...While the latter is merely good, the former is truly superb - a searing, powerful, darkly hilarious attack on traditional notions of patriotism and soldiery. In Jacket's first post-credit scene, we meet one of film's most outspoken villains - Gunnery Sergeant Hartman (R. Lee Ermey), a senior drill instructor in United States Marine Corps...Although certainly bloody, Jacket's second half never captures the creeping suspense of Platoon nor the visceral combat of Saving Private Ryan. The result is an intriguing, if somewhat cold, grunt's-eye-view of America's worst military debacle.

Jack Kroll, NewsWeek As brutally unsparing as "Platoon" was, it was ultimately warm and embracing.
Jay Scott, The Globe & Mail The best war movie ever made!
Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader Elliptical, full of subtle inner rhymes...profoundly moving...
Variety An intense, schematic, superbly made Vietnam War drama.
Vincent Canby, The New York Times ...harrowing, beautiful and characteristically eccentric...A film of immense and very rare imagination.
